Hello lovely friends our names are Sami and Hashim with are brothers and both have autism and learning difficulties. Our mum is going to write this for both of us .
Sami is 19 and has Autism and learning difficulties. I also have a condition called erbs palsy which affects my left arm . I need to do lots of exercise but due to my autism it was difficult to find gyms I could go to , they didn’t seem to be accessible for people with special needs especially autism . I have been working with salford leisure with support of other professionals to make the gyms more accessible. I now go to make local gym and love it . I feel like more businesses and companies need to make reasonable adjustments for people with special needs to access things .
Hashim has more complex Autism , he only says a feel words and is very sensory . He loves to self regulate which means he jumps high on the spot and flappy his hands , people are very ignorant and stare at him . Our autism affects us both very differently but we are happy and healthy and love to socially interact with others . Thank you for reading about us .
